    Hunter College has two ESL programs for adults which meet on Saturdays.  The first program called SPELL is FREEand only for parents of children 18 years or younger living with them.  The second program called COPE is for any adult 18 or over and only costs $60 for the whole semester.  Both programs still have seats available for the Fall 2017 semester.

    For Fall 2017, the registration deadline for SPELL has been extended to Saturday, September 9 and the deadline for COPE is Saturday, August 26.  All of the program and application information is on the attached applications.  Students may register by mail or in-person.

    Part of our curriculum in the SPELL Program is family literacy which can greatly benefit both the parent and the child.  I would greatly appreciate it if you would pass along these applications to the Principals and/or Parent Coordinators in your district.

    Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.  My office phone number is 212-772-4620.

PRINCIPAL'S WEEKLY

  

Principal’s Weekly Message

Week of December 11, 2017

Dear Mott Hall Families,

The focus of this school year is to emphasize Academics and Service, and to exemplify all students. As a school, we have already accomplished both measurable goals and meaningful goals. All students shine at Mott Hall. I am honored to say that this is also apparent to the outside community. This week I spoke with 2 colleague principals who commended our 8th grade students for providing tutoring to their elementary school students on Fridays.  One principal shared, “Your students are so well mannered, role models for our students and helpful to our teachers.  Thank you for sending them to our school.”  What a proud moment for Mott Hall!

Our main bulletin board is now adorned with the names of our First Quarter Honor Roll Recipients. What a privilege to bestow this great honor on our students.  Congratulations to them, their families and teachers! Students will be honored at our Holiday Concert next week.  We look forward to honoring more members next marking period.

On Friday December 1st, our scholars participated in a Poetry Slam.  What a proud moment! Two of our 7th grade students won the competition.  Congratulations Luna Ulterio and Jerermy Rosario!

There will be a PTA Holiday Dinner Dance on Friday, December 15th.  The PTA needs volunteers to chaperone and support by bringing a dish.  We would really like you to join us for this very special event.  It is going to be fun!  We will have food, dinner, music and a contest.  Please contact Ms. Moran for more information or to share your support (participation or food).

In collaboration,

Judith De Los Santos-Peña

CURRICULUM

The goal of the Mott Hall School’s curriculum is the development of skilled students who are self-directed critical thinkers.

 

Mott Hall students are considered young scholars. They learn subject matter through a constructivist and project-based approach   using   powerful learning techniques such as Socratic dialogues, literature circles, writing for student publications, digital filmmaking and web site creation.

The curriculum is further enriched by its    alignment to the Common Core National   Standards. Students are offered accelerated special courses and seminars as well as special enrichment electives such as chess, robotics and stock market studies which engage them in real world investigations tied directly to student needs and interests.

TECHNOLOGY

Mott Hall has a technology rich environment. In an effort to confront the digital divide, we use the PupilPath online system to give       parents and students instant access to grades, attendance, and progress reports.
